Lacoste Fall 2013 RTW

We saw some athletic style sprouting last spring continuing ´till summer but the story doesn´t end there. This fall, athletic mix which used to accompany you to sporty events is now re-interpreted, re-styled, and leveled up for a more luxe effect.

Fashion designer brand Lacoste showcased several bodycon midi dresses with boxy upper parts (as of an oversized sweaters) at the fall 2013 runway. Some celebrities such as Rihanna were also spotted wearing the trend. Although I´m not a fan of Rihanna, I´m a fan of these runway sports lux that I´m seeing. If you too want to sport athletic attire this season, here are my recommendations.

Sporty Bodycon Dress

A long sleeve bodycon dress in gorgeous cobalt blue, with imitated single collar detail, may look perfect with a pair of sexy pumps for an evening party but could be donned with a boyish pair of off-white ankle boots, featuring front zip and buckle detail, for a sports lux street look. To balance the athletic element of your footwear, add a feminine white clutch.

Contrast Panel Cut Out Detailing

Take a couple of steps away from ultra-feminine evening outfits this season with an elegant dress that screams adventure. The stunning combination of cobalt blue and white is evident, add to that the contrast panels and cutout detailing. This dress would make you figure it´s worth the investment (what more if it´s as affordable as this?). Finish the look with sexy platform sandals in white.

Colour Block Cut Out Midi Dress

Dress, Clutch, Shoes

This colorblock midi dress is perfectly made. I love how the below-the-knee length balances the dress´ cutout and sleeveless details on top. It also features contrast panels from the waist down to hips, giving you a more defined silhouette. Trendy cap-toe pumps or sexy strappy sandals will give this darling justice but if you want to really push it, opt for buckled color contrast cage heels for edgier appeal.

Boxy Colourblock Dress
Dress, Handbag, Platform

The boxy, oversized sleeves of this bodycon dress is a trendy update to the classic, figure hugging shape. While the sleeves add you weight, the contrast panels on each sides of the dress slim you down. However, because this midi hits around the knees, the overall result will flatter every girl who´s gifted with length, well. That said, petite girls should steer away from it because this style will make them appear shorter. If you´re of medium height, opt for sporty platforms with heels.
